Great fit

I have a long narrow head and always struggled to find a helmet that fitted correctly. Was able to try all brands on at Sportsbike store and this lid was the perfect fit

Nice looking lid!

This helmet looks great and has a real quality feeling to it. This helmet was bought to replace my Shark D-Skwal which is a good helmet too, but with the Spartan you can really feel the upgrade in quality and design. I am generally in between sizes when it comes to lids and it all depends on the manufacturer usually. I'm 58.5cm and I was a large in the D-Skwal, but that got a little loose and used to lift on the motorway. I ordered both medium and large to try on at home and decided the medium was a better fit. The forehead is a little tight but the cheek pads are perfect and there's no movement. It also helps that the medium is lighter and physically smaller due to the two different shell sizes. The medium has a smaller shell and the large moves up to the bigger shell. The medium looks right but the large starts to make your head look huge! Exchange was effortless thanks to SBS outstanding customer service as always.

My old shark helmet saved me serious head injury

My previous shark kraken helmet saved me serous head injury, when a car collided with me. I was so impressed by the way my old (3week) helmet performed that I immediately replaced it with an identical one. The service I received from Sportsbikeshop was excellent and fast, and I will use their services again !!!

Very comfortable for glasses.

Excellent service, price and delivery as usual from sports bike. Really nice helmet. Fits perfectly and true to size. Helmet has a real quality feel. I wear glasses with thick arms and they fit perfectly with no pressure points witch can really hurt on s long ride. Helmet came with pin lock and s free spare shark clear visor AND a free smoke visor. I don't think I will ever use the smoke visor as the helmet has a very good and optically clear flip down tinted insert. I would definitely buy a shark helmet again..... Not for a while though as this has a 5 years gaurantee.

Shark review

Great helmet fits very well I would say great for warm weather riding due to good ventilation system also the extendable chin guard is a great feature

Massive improvement from my hjc is 17. This is only my second ever helmet and it is definitely an upgrade. I'm happy with my choice.

Spartan Redding Replica

One of if not the most comfortable helmet I have owned. Full of great features. The internal sun visor is great as it comes down to the bridge of your nose and doesn't obscure your view. The inner materials are soft with plenty of cushioning. I would really recommend this helmet.

Great helmet, hardly any wind noise

Great helmet, very quiet not a lot of wind noise. The sun visor is very easy to use and the pin lock visor is great, very pleased with my purchase

Awesome!

So this is my second Spartan helmet. My first I accidentally dropped...furious with myself! I bought the on sale Shark S900 Dual Special Edition - Matt Black first - swiftly returned it(!!), and reordered another Spartan!! It's comfortable, feels solid, very smooth sun visor mechanism, great vents... perhaps what I'm used too, but the cheaper helmet felt just that...cheaper, with clunky mechanisms and less robust. I love this helmet.

Shark Spartan helmet

Really comfy helmet and ideal if you wear glasses as it has easy fit system. Much quieter and lighter than last helmet which was a Shark Evoline 2. Sportsbikeshop were very helpful. Bought in store and staff very attentive

Top class service

Very comfortable helmet. Size fits snug and is very light. Would prefer a little (curtain) for the gap at the chin as it's a waste of space which can be used to improve sound proofing and cold air getting in. Other than that small thing the helmet is basically all you need for the price and can't really get any better.

Top performers

Previously owned a Shoei Quest helmet. I was looking for something similar priced but with a Internal sun visor. This helmet fits great and feels light. It's got a good deep internal Sun visor and built in easy to use chin cover that has definitely proved useful as it's been cold. It was delivered next day as promised by Sportsbikeshop! Top notch helmet and service.

Service - excellent, Helmet - excellent

Really happy with the price, delivery and the actual helmet its-self. Really high quality and it looks really nice in the flesh. It has a certain amount of adjust-ability in the fit by changing or removing pads. I wondered if choosing a helmet online was a good idea but its so easy just to send it straight back if its not the perfect helmet for you but I am happy that this one is perfect for me.

Quality lid

Would have had a five star rating if the inner visor mechanism was on the side of the lid as my previous model had(Shark 900 Creed)this one being on the top is a bit of a pain with thick gloves on. Cannot find fault with anything else, great fit, brilliant if you wear glasses and a D ring fastening which I prefer to the quick release type. Lightweight fibreglass and really quiet at 70mph. The vent over the top is really good and will benefit the rider on warmer days, another great lid from Shark.

Comfortable and good value in the sale

Generally well made and designed. It's comfortable, well vented and wind noise is minimal. The visor is of a good size and recessed to fit the supplied Pinlock insert to reduce fogging. The internal sun visor is really handy. It's easy enough to operate with gloves on, if not quite as easy as some competing helmets since the slider is on the top of the helmet and the button is small. Motorsports approved so good for track use but the lack of a SHARP rating for an helmet of this price might be a concern. Linings are comfortable but not as well constructed or fitted as some cheaper helmets I've owned. Spaces to allow fitting of the earpieces for a Bluetooth headset but intended to fit Sharks own BT set (expensive and poorly featured!). The fitting of the padding doesn't make it easy to route cables and fit external BT equipment from other manufacturers. In short it's a really good but not excellent helmet. I couldn't recommend it at the £380ish RRP - I'd probably go for a different helmet from another brand if spending that much, but it's superb value for money in the Sportsbikeshop sale at £225.

Light weight & pretty quiet

Great helmet. Fits really well and I love the style. I have a naked bike so the noise level is pretty loud but this helmet is so much better than my previous one and it's lightweight too. I can ride with headphones in and actually hear the directions of my Sat-Nav or music.
